Subject: Are You Somewhat Paranoid?
After the starking realism of 'Angry Boy', it's nice to turn to such a ludicrous piece of pap as 'Are You Popular?' Where we find out that 'Boys don't hang out with girls that park in cars'. This film has been used in so many social film compilations that it's extremely familiar, but it's nice to see the whole thing. Teenagers are of course, played to such a ludicrous degree by the actors it's hard to imagine what the teens in the 50's thought. Heaven forbid that they would treat this seriously.
